We loved staying in the casa. The hosts are very attentive, respond quickly, and are very nice people. Location is ideal for someone who wants to escape the city noise but still be close enough for dining, sightseeing and shopping. It is situated off the main road between Alberobello and Locorotondo - two true gems. Surroundings are very quiet, with a beautiful garden and outside patio to enjoy your meals. Most rooms have wall AC units, except for the separate suite with its own entrance (it can get very hot there). Interior is beautifully decorated with antiques, and has everything for a convenient stay. I wish some bedrooms had a place to hang clothes, but it's manageable. Kitchen is fully equipped. Hot water takes about 20 min to heat up, and you cannot run AC while heating the water but if you plan in advance, it is not an issue. You cannot walk anywhere, but the closest city is 5 min away by car, so is a supermarket and a gas station. Car is a must. The beaches are about 30 min away by car. If you are looking for an authentic experience that only exists here, this place is for you!! We had the most wonderful memories, and are thankful to hosts for letting us to experience their beautiful historic casa.
